It’ll be all fright on the night as Blackpool’s Supernatural Events hosts half-term ghost walks until Saturday.

Wrapping up warm will not stop the chills as nightly walks take place from 7.30pm, calling in as some of the town’s most haunted hotspots, including some of its most famous buildings and attractions.

Stephen Mercer (pictured) leads the walks as the Victorian Ghost Hunter, sharing stories of mystery and the macabre as well as spooky stories and terrifying tales.

Walks set off from the front of North Pier.

Stephen said: “I have hosted Blackpool Ghost Walks since 2010 and I am so pleased that both residents and visitors to the town enjoy them.

“Last year the walks took place during all the main holiday periods; they were very well received.

“This year more walks than ever have been arranged and there will be some new scary stories to tell at a few new locations.

“It’s going to be fright-fully good fun.”

The walks, which are Blackpool’s number one ranked activity at online reviews site TripAdvisor, last around 90 minutes and are suitable for all the family.

Tickets cost £5, £3.50 for under 14s or £15 for a family of four (minimum of one under 14), and can be purchased in advance from
